"And I didn't you," I retorted, laughing, because I really did begin to like the queer old lady now, and was glad I hadn't dropped a pillow on her head.

It's such a comfort to hear English again, and talk it, after having to converse by gesture--except with Beau. I hope you're going on to Italy?"

Wonderful! As light and rich and delicious as whipped cream. The Williamsons never disappoint. Their fiction /travelogues are always delightful. Enjoy!
